Does anyone have this book?

FONTBOOK by My main problem on choosing fonts is a visual reference and this seem a nice tool. Looking at font on screen can tend to be tedious and evetually they look all the same (as a friend of mine theory where the fonts are all like Times new Roman and Arial). :-)

I have it and it’s the best font reference I’ve ever seen
or used. There are more fonts than any other current
specimen book and they are properly shown with handy
cross-references for typefaces of similar styles. Buy it.

Write a review for this book in our new area: Typophile Books

This is a no-brainer: it’s simply the best. I do
almost all my looking-up in the FontBook, and
although it’s more than 5 years old, it still is an
invaluable reference tool. The perfect companion to
it might well be Indie-Fonts, which I unfortunately
don’t own yet

Indie-Fonts is a great resource and would be a welcome addition to anyone’s graphics/typography library. It’s been very helpful in identifying and selecting fonts from smaller independent foundries.

or wait a month and get Indie Fonts 2, which features our new foundry (and lots of typophile members who publish through us).
